THEATRE SEVERN 10TH BIRTHDAY REVIVAL PRODUCTION
A musical for children starring over 250 young people from across Shropshire.
Originally staged on 25 and 26 March 2009 as Theatre Severn’s Official Opening Production, and attended by HRH Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, ROMANY WOOD returns in March for a special revival to celebrate 10 years since our opening.
ROMANY WOOD is based on the book of the same title, which was written and illustrated by Beshlie, a Romany who lives in Shropshire. This wonderful book provided the inspiration for a 40-minute classical work for children’s voices, a narrator and orchestra, written by David Gaukroger and David Carr who will also narrate on the evening. The first half will feature a choir provided by the Shropshire Music Service and features children from various local schools and the Shropshire Youth Orchestra, plus special guest soloist Erika Madi Jones.
This is followed by a revival of the 'Romany Wood Ballet', directed by Robert Parker, Artistic Director at Elmhurst School of Dance. This work was specially commissioned for the original production and choreographed by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Kit Holder.
Join us for a celebratory evening as we mark 10 years since opening.
